Once you made the decision to follow a daily 2,000-calorie diet plan, you may have also discovered how time consuming it can be to count and record calories for every food you want to eat throughout the day. Using prepackaged convenience foods can eliminate the bulk of that process.
Lean Cuisine meals are prepackaged and available in most large supermarket chain stores. With an average 250 to 390 calories per entree, you can easily maintain your daily 2,000-calorie plan and still have some wiggle room for snacks. The company provides a website that allows you to view all the different styles of food available, making meal planning easy with a drop-down menu. Once you have chosen your desired meals, you can go to the store and pick them up. Be sure to add plenty of fruits and vegetables to round out the diet.
Nutrisystem has developed a plan where you pick your meals for the week or month, order them online and have them shipped directly to your front door. With vegetarian options as well as categories of food types, including Mexican and Asian, you can have a variety of food choices while letting the company do the calorie counting for you. Toss in some salads, apples and low-fat dairy products and your 2,000-calorie daily diet plan will be complete.
